These data reveal that the relative engagement of brain mechanisms associated with procedural versus memory-based calculation of single-digit arithmetic problems is related to high-school level mathematical competence, highlighting the fundamental role that mental arithmetic fluency plays the acquisition of higherlevel mathematical competence.
One of the major goals of science education is for all citizens to have some basic level of science literacy.

The lifespan of CFL light bulbs is supposed to be long, but the limitations of that technology may be cut short thanks to a new kind of bulb.
